I realized this earlier this week, and (you will all be so proud of me) instead of casting on the half-a-jillion new things that I'm dying to work on, I took myself to my spreadsheet (remember my spreadsheet?) and decided that what this Stash Dash needs is a strategy.
Note to Self: have strategy revelation a month before next Stash Dash starts, not a month before it ends.
So, I took stock of how much time was left, and what I already have on the hooks and needles.
I needed a project that would be over a thousand yards when completed, but is already close enough to done that I can pull it off in three to four weeks.
Maybe something that only need a couple of sleeves, a button or a zipper band, and a collar.
Something like Rowan's Emilien sweater, maybe.
Besides, if I don't finish it quick he'll grow again. That child is forever tall, and has arms that go on for miles. Yesterday I messaged my bestie Koren about my sleeve lamentations.
|Please ignore my egregious spelling/typo error.|
Anyway, last Tuesday Rowan's sweater barely had one sleeve started. As of last night, it has one full sleeve and the second sleeve is barely started.
I feel good about my chances ::touch wood::
When he was last polled, Rowan opted for a zipper (instead of buttons) and a collar (instead of a hood). I'll ask one last time when the second sleeve is installed, but not knitting a hood in this thing sure doesn't hurt my feelings any.
In other knitting news, Carl's Big Dude Socks are growing (again).
